Felabration at Freedom Park Lagos is an annual festival of music and arts commemorating the life and times of Nigeria’s foremost musical icon, the late Fela Anikulakpo Kuti.
This year will mark the 80th posthumous birthday and 21 years after the passing away of the Legend Fela Kuti. Theme: “DOUBLE WAHALA”, an addendum to the general Felabration theme “Overtaking Overtake”. Felabration at Freedom Park will hold from the 15th of October till the 21st of October 2018.
The lineup of activities taking place at Freedom Park shall feature a special presentation of the Musical, “Fela and The Kalakuta Queens”. Live music performances by Femi Kuti and The Positive Force, Dede Mabiaku, Omawumi, Freedom 5 Band, Dabyna, Olu Jazz, Lu Femi Afrikannas, Rex Suru (Los Angeles USA), Gboyega Afrobeat (Ireland), Newen Afrobeat band (Chile), Po Boy (France) and many more live bands across the globe.
Therefore, as we celebrate Fela Anikulakpo Kuti posthumously at 80, we seek to empower the people through art, dance, music and intellectual discourse with the belief that together we shall succeed in ‘Overtaking Overtake’.
For the past 5 years, the historic Freedom Park Lagos has become a leading venue partner for the Elite audience with premium entertainment and reception of live music performances, exhibitions and funfair from both ingenious and foreign artistes at the Festival.
